Madonna has revealed that she didn’t mean to roll around on the stage during her 1984 performance at the MTV VMAs.

The singer admitted that a costume malfunction caused her to get down on the floor during her rendition of “Like A Virgin”, which she sang in a wedding dress.

Talking on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Madonna explained: “I was standing on top of a wedding cake – as one does – and I walked down these steps and I lost my shoe. I lost my white stiletto. I thought, ‘Oh my God – how am I going to get that? It’s over there and I’m on TV’. So I thought, ‘I’ll pretend I meant to do this’, and I dove on to the floor.”
